Toys R Us Skylanders Giants single figures $4.79 and $9.99 1600 Microsoft Points YMMV

Keep in mind this is extremely YMMV!!

Just got back from my Toys R Us, would of posted this a lot earlier, but I worked till close. The Skylanders Giants figures were ringing up $5.99 each plus you can use the 20% off coupon from the Friday/Saturday flyer, which they have in store. Thats around $4.79 a figure!!
Plus you also get a $10 gift card when you spend $30 or more on Skylanders!!!

edit: It is only on the regular sized giant singles, legendary stealth elf is not included.

ALSO the 1600 Microsoft points card was ringing up $9.99 as opposed to the normal $19.99. Keep in mind it is only the digital one. The one that prints the code on the receipt. (Not the scratch off one).

edit: this only works on the points card that has no game pictured on the top (aka the Fifa 13 card). The cards are with the rest of 1600 point cards, they are the paper ones. There is no scratch off for them, the code just prints with the receipt, and it rings up 9.99, so it should pop up as soon as its scanned.
Managed to pick myself up 7 skylanders giants figures and a 1600 points card for only $44.69 with tax, and I got a $10 gift card. I freakin cleaned house!

Really wish I coulda posted this earlier...who knows if it will be like this tomorrow.

I read on the TRU Ad 12/16 - 12/22 that someone saw a person purchase 9 boxes full of skylanders and I'm guessing this was why. Got to run by TRU in the morning anyway so I'll see if its the same at mine.

So there is no way to check the price of the 1600 points untill it prints? I'll be right near there in the morning and would like to stock up on points. Guess I could always "buy" one and if it's not $9.99 i'll just change my mind and walk away.

Do these print in electronics register or is their a kiosk? Sorry I never go to TRU but thanks for heads up.

I got the triple pack off of eBay for $15.77 after taxes and it has free shipping. Good deal IMO.

Of all the times for me to delete an e-mail from TRU that I might need. They slam my inbox at least 5 times a day.

Oh well, I'll probably still go for this. Thanks OP!

Does that include the Big Giant figures or only the Small Giant figures?

TRU prices are not YMMV. These prices should be nationwide. Good deal OP, we'll hear some confirmations soon.

Deal for points was for receipt points, not cards. So that needs to be tested if er can get instructions on how.

I am going back in today, I will have someone confirm whether or not it works still, because I will be unable to post until I get out tonight. I made it more clear about the cards in the topic as well. They are just the paper (not plastic) cards, and instead of a scratch off code, the code prints on a receipt. Its some dumb new way they are sending them.

In case there are any CAGs near me, this deal worked at the Toysrus in Wayne, NJ. I made my purchase around midnight, at 12:05am so I'm not sure if it's still active now. This is the card that rang up $9.99:

I think that points card rings up the code on your receipt so it's not on the actual card
